Lost In Space........ Brent!
Hi Lost! :) I'm dancinbears.
At first I read your "IT" thread, and knew you were referring to my hope thread where I used the term. Normally I might sit here and give you this long explanation.... but I had a long day at work, and I'm exhausted. and honestly very upset by everything on the news. so I'll simply leave it at this... I'm sorry you didn't understand what I meant.
As far as Brent and recommendations.... that I can do! :)
To actually 'see' why I love him so much, watch Downhill from Here DVD or Truckin up To Buffalo DVD ... in fact, head right to Man Smart, Women Smarter on truckin up to Buffalo! Him and Jerry are swapping riffs back and forth... and you gotta see the look on Jerry's face! He just brought such energy to the band! :) Plus I love his raspy voice! ...and I think he was hot!! =D
Some of my favorite shows that have Brent highlights are:
10-17-82 --Brent nails a great Never Trust a Woman, and there's a sweet Brent/Bobby jam right before drums.
7-22-84 --Brent surprises everyone with a really hot version of I just want to make love to you, which had been last played in '66!
11-5-85 --A Strong Don't need Love right before drums, and the band stays onstage to play it with him.
There's tons more, but those were the ones I could remember right away.
Everybody knows I'm also a huge fan of March 1990-- I think it's some of Brent's best! just listen from the 15th to the end of the month... or, head right to 3-26-90 -- Little light, Blow away and Dear Mr. Fantasy... WOW!
As far as CD's I've got some Go Ahead I could share with you... and a very rare Solo Album of his that was never released! Also got 4-26-88 which is a Brent solo show followed by a Bobby Solo show, and then later the Grateful Dead played an acoustic show after. good stuff! :)
Lastly, the best site on the web, hands down is...
You simply have to check it out.
Anyway, I share everything I've got, so if you'd like a bomb just e-mail me. :)
and welcome to the forum.
P.S. oh, and for Cliff, not to worry too much... dancinbears is right now immersed in 1974! 2-24 to be exact! =D
